story. the nfl without the players union has decided to attack the lack of standing before the national anthem. this is what they are going to say. if you are not going to stand, stay in the locker room. if you are going to stand on the sidelines, don't create a scene. if do you create a scene, taking a knee, maybe fist in the air that's not written, you are going to get fined as a team. ainsley: owner of the jets says don't care. fine me. my guys are allowed to kneel. the owner of the giants said no question the decision had impact on the business. ratings were down 10% last year. important it pay attention to fans' concerns because without them you are dead. and jacksonville jaguars said fans were there to watch football and it was important not to have distractions. steve: remember, the president of the united states inserted himself into this culture debate when he was down at one of those rallies in alabama. brian asked him about the breaking news and here's his breaking news answer.
3:09 am
>> brian: some breaking news while you were in there. the nfl has made a decision on something that means a lot to you and other americans. owners have voted unanimously to approve a new national anthem rule that says if you are not going to stand, stay in the locker room. did you go to the field, you have to stand. if you have a protest, your team is going to get fined. this is the first time you are hearing this. what's your reaction, mr. president. >> i think that's good. i don't think people should be staying in locker rooms. you have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing. you shouldn't be there. maybe you shouldn't be in the country. you have to stand proudly for the national anthem. and the nfl owners did the right thing if that's what they have done. brian: if that is the story, do you feel like you pushed this story forward and you pushed this to a conclusion? >> i think the people pushed it forward. this was not me. i brought it out. i think the people pushed it forward. this country is very smart. we have a very smart country. and, you know, that's something ideally could have been taken care of when it first started. it would have been a lot easier. if they did that, they're
3:10 am
doing the right thing. brian: i think it's seven out of 10. what he just brought up is true. you are going to say okay, they are missing four players. why are they in the locker room? what are they mad at the country for? what if you sit there and put your fist in the air? steve: starting soon when nfl season starts. i bet there is going to be a box somewhere online where it says so many people actually were on the sidelines and some people were missing. do you think this is a good answer? a lot of people say, you know, don't know exactly why the nfl did it, aside from the fact that you look at the ratings and they are on a skid. ainsley: guidelines now say they have to show respect for the flag and for the anthem. that's what most people were upset about. they understand there is an issue, some of these players, you know, they have a beef with what's going on in the country, understandably. so we will sit down and talk with them. do not do it during the anthem. brian: a little bit later on he responds to james comey tweet. remember the tweet

3:18 am
republicans keep the house and the senate. here to weigh, in host of varney and company on the fox business network, our friend, stuart varney. >> thank you. steve: stuart, to the horror of the democrats, the amount of money people are putting in their pocket is going up and it sounds like donald trump is getting a lot of the credit. >> if the november elections are based on the performance of the economy, the republicans are looking better and better. because, president trump's growth policy, his growth program is working. we are gradually returning to prosperity. and it is the direct result of president trump's policies. he has gone for tax cut and deregulation and turned the economy around. and with it he has turned around that feeling of prosperity that households have. that graphic you just showed, january 2017, 59400 mediu59400ed me median january house. fast forward 2018, you are
3:19 am
up $2,000 per household. 3% highner what, 15 months. that compares to a dead flat line throughout the 8 obama years. we are returning to prosperity because of president trump's policies. and i think that will be reflected in the november elections. steve: that number is directly impacted by the amount of withholding no longer withheld. people have more money in their pocket. >> yes. steve: news this morning, apparently for decades, united states has not been the most competitive nation on earth. now we are back on number one. what happened? >> the years and years and years we have been trailing hong kong and singapore. steve: we were number three. >> actually, we were lower than that. we were number four and on occasion number five. steve: you are making it worse. stop. >> now we have bounced back to number one. we are now ahead of hong kong, singapore and the nether land having trailed them for a long, long time. we have bounced back to number one. the reason is very simple.
3:20 am
this is a competitiveness ranking. we are more competitive now because of president trump's deregulation. case closed. that's what has done it. regulation was holding us back in terms of competitiveness. those regulations are gone. we have bounced back to number one in the world. steve: you just wrote the republican's campaig ads for november we cut taxes. >> time for democrats to get on board would w. growth. only way forward in my opinion. steve: absolutely stay tuned to figure out what the democrats' campaign rally is going to be. watch stuart over on fox business. it's a very competitive channel weekdays starting at:00. >> we are winning that one, too. steve: by a long ways. good job. meanwhile he is the 30-year-old jobless man who just evicted -- who was just evicted from his parents' house, now he is talking to fox news. an interview you have to see. that's the guy we were talking about yesterday. plus more of brian of's

3:27 am
country, the thing i have done for this country, the firing of james comey is going to go down as a good thing. the fbi is great. i know so many people in the fbi. the fbi is a fantastic institutes some of the people at the top were rotten apples. james comey was one of them. i did a great service to this country by getting rid of them. by firing them. brian: have you no problem explaining this to your grandchildren. >> no, no. our country is coming back. our country is respected again. what we are doing over there is just another sign of it. that's just one of many things. but, we have a country that's come a long way in a short period of time. i think you know that better than anybody, brian. you see it and you report on it every day. you look at the economy, you look at jobs. lowest unemployment rate in many, many, in decades. lowest black unemployment in history. lowest hispanic unemployment in history. lowest women unemployment, 19 years. our country is doing well
3:28 am
and we are respected again. we are doing incredible trade deals which haven't been negotiated for 25 years. steve: it's interesting he would turn like that and talk about the economy. while he has so many things on his table, at the same time, because of the russia collusion investigation, he has this to continually answer to those things. and, you know, to the administration's credit they have pointed out many times so far it was about russian collusion, where is the collusion? abby: i think to turn to the economy is smart. that's what people at home really care about. they care about putting food on the table. seconding their kids to college. all this stuff going on in washington. that's why people put him in office. because they want to drain all of that. brian: i have an opinion on what you just said. for the first time he doesn't have to say it himself because things are coming out. he wants people not to focus on his words but what's emerging from the investigation. for years he has been saying i didn't do anything and i'm going to prove it to you.
3:29 am
things coming out i want you to focus on that. think about measured think about what he has done. things are starting to go off rails a little bit but the president hasn't. the vice president has been aggressive. others have been aggressive he has not. so i asked him what about this summit? do you still believe it's on track? now, i have to be honest, afterwards i found out from reading the chinese newspapers where north korea thinks of mike pence's comments did i not have that information going in. but, watch. june 12th, have you going to be in singapore. >> we will see what happens. right now we are looking at it talking about it we have certain conditions. we will see what happens. there is a good chance. and it would be a great thing for north korea. if that happens, it will be a great thing for north korea. most importantly, it would be a great thing for the world. we will see what happens. brian: are you okay with the phase in of a i do nuclearization. if confidence measures are required? >> we are going to see. i would like to have it done immediately. physically, a phase-in may
3:30 am
be necessary. i would like to see it done at one time. steve: that's the key point right there. that's the sound bite. rather than just north korea pulling the plug completely, they would do it over stages. ainsley: they are not going to give up nuclear weapons. they said that. steve: they want leverage. to brian's point, one of the foreign ministers from north korea said regarding mike pence, called him a political dummy because mike pence came out and said, you know, unless north korea denukes, going to wind up like libya. going to wind up like qaddafi. that was not good for qaddafi. ainsley: meanwhile nancy pelosi isn't dumb hearing about those crumb comments. >> when the passed i gave my employees $1,000 bonus and 5% pay increase. it certainly was not crumbs to them. ainsley: her response is

politicians use raw intelligence or raw law enforcement data for political narratives. so, if you were to ask me will they get what they're looking for, it depends on who they are. because, the republicans are looking for a narrative that will undermine the beginning of the mueller investigation. the democrats are looking for a narrative which will justify the continued mueller investigation. will they get what they're looking for? probably each side will. but the constitution actually keeping congress from interfering with prosecution. steve: they can have oversight. >> correct. they can't see everything. they have written laws that say they can't see everything. for example, if bob mueller presented something or one of his prosecutors to a grand jury it's unlawful to share it with congress. if there is information about a confidential informant whether it's this person we have been talking about all week or somebody else, my guess there is more

than one confidential informant. brian: your guess or you know. >> my guess is. that information can't be shared with members of congress. if you ask me what's going to be shared? that, i don't know. i don't have any idea. i would kill to be a fly on the wall in both of those meetings and come back here and tell you. ainsley: specifically about the spy or the informant, correct? >> we believe that it is. again, we don't know. i'm sure at the second meeting where the gang of 8 is there. people from both groups. ainsley: bipartisan group. >> they are going to want to ask for more information. quite frankly, rod rosenstein has to have the courage to say, justice department has a little bit of independence, and there are some things we can't share with you. it's not out of disrespect it's not because we are hiding something. it's that we're in the middle of a criminal investigation. if we tip our hands now, it will affect the outcome. steve: and if we have news about what they saw tomorrow on this program, that would make everybody who was

we even see that as a massive, massive increase. what does that mean for the family that's watching, for jobs in america? we have people telling us just this morning on fbn that it can mean higher prices overall. particularly for americans, right? because exactly what happens is these companies just slap that tariff on their product and then americans pay for that so, people saying it's going to mean higher prices, maybe more inflation. that could be another result. steve: all right. but it's all about trying to level the playing field. >> that's right. steve: meanwhile, ainsley was telling us about an event she was at yesterday featuring you. >> it was unbelievably awesome. and ainsley and a whole bunch of other fox folks joined us. i received what they call a survival with impact award from susan b. komen, the new york affiliate right here. you can see me jammin jamming throwing arranged the award. >> you beat it. >> you guys helped us raise

4:08 am
so you breaking news while you were in there. the nfl made a decision on something that means a lot to you and other americans. owners have voted unanimously to approve a new national anthem rule that says if you are not going to stand, stay in the locker room. if you go to the field you have to stand if have a protested your team is going to get fined. this is the first time hearing this. what's your reaction, mr. president. >> i don't think people should be staying in locker rooms. you have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing. you shouldn't be there. maybe you shouldn't be in the country. you have to stand proudly for the national anthem. and the nfl owners did the right thing if that's what they have done. brian: if that is the story, do you feel like you pushed this story forward and you pushed this to a conclusion? >> i think the people pushed it forward. this was not me. i brought it out. i think the people pushed it forward. this country is very smart. we have very supreme court people. and you know, that's something ideally could have been taken care of when it first started. it would have been a lot easier. if they did that, they are doing the right thing.

4:18 am
and that the infliction of selective outrage. what i mean by that is i go bag to august of 2016. candidate trump. he brings up the right to bear apartments. hillary clinton is elected the judges she appoints to the supreme court can take that second amendment away or at least change it and he says and i quote. if she gets to pick her judges, nothing to do. second amendment people maybe there is. he later says pro-second amendment citizens must organize and get out to vote to save our constitution. here are the headlines that were a result of trump just saying that. steve: that was big. >> my gosh. huffington post donald trump suggests shooting hillary clinton, her supreme court picks or both. or the atlantic trump's second amendment comment can nont excused. the point is if a republican or a conservative says something like this. the condemnation is overwhelming, if it happens with somebody like lawrence tribe who is a harvard law professor. steve: friends with the obamas and selective outrage. >> sweeping the country like the macarena 1996.

4:20 am
>> that's exactly right. look, we see kathy griffin. remember, she held up a likeness of president trump. steve: right. this was exactly a year ago. she is on the view just two weeks ago getting a stopping ovation while most of the hosts on that show were applauding her for what she did. remember shakespeare in the park just last summer? graphically murdering the president basically on stage? standing ovations every night and the press definited it. the point is this is the new normal it never would have been in a billion years a new normal under the previous administration if this were president obama. steve: exit question, is it part of the problem the fact that so many members of the mainstream media are democrats? or lean that way? >> oh, well, they definitely lean that way and just to wrap up here, 91% of all coverage of this president has been negative since he has taken office. that's pew, that's media research so maybe they agree with this sort of rhetoric because of hot target, no pun intended is. steve: joe concha explaining very well selective outrage in the media. joe, thank you very much.

about hiring all these people and use a different metric to figure out something hate speech or whether it's inappropriate. they are also using in your estimation, liberal organizations as the fact checkers and that does not help your side. >> yeah. i mean, algorithm changes. let's be very honest. they live in a liberal bubble in northern california. this is where these people are doing. this companies, employees saw this in the 2016 campaign where they were manually manipulating the trends. we seen this with the algorithm changes. reduction in reach of trump's platform 20, 30, 40% reach decrease. we want to make sure they are done fairly. there is a transparent public know why can't we know why people are being banned? why we see? steve: algorithm understanding why they took something down. that's important. ainsley: brad, this is your first interview since you were named campaign manager

democracy if they continue to push this narrative that russia determined the fate of our election. steve: and, brad, on election day, 2016, you know, you saw all the online stuff. at what point did you realize hey, wait a minute, is he going to win. >> it was a couple days before that i was in the studio with other people, i said early results are coming in. can you see the trends. and we could also see the enthusiasm on their side that's not there. their polster was looking at it. it was inaccurate. for our data science, the republican party has one of the most elaborate and sophisticated data in history. that continues to lead us smart decisions and see that withholding the house. steve: you have a big smile because you are paying for it. >> it is the best and michigan, we had president trump winning by 8,000 votes 2 days before the election he won by 10,700. that's how spot on it was. >> it's important. it's the party of trump. ainsley: thanks for being with us. >> thank you for having us.

4:37 am
insist we give up the demand. it's better to have the meeting. ainsley: i agree. >> first of all, north korea has enough weapons, aimed at seoul, biggest city in south korea that they can kill hundreds of thousands of people the first day without nuclear weapons. so you have to be very careful about a war. last the last thing you want. trump has ratcheted up the pressure, he has made it very real. i actually thought that secretary pompeo's speech about the iranians was also aimed at the north koreans. it was a very tough speech and said basically we're going to take apart your economy reminder to the north koreans you don't want to play nice, fine we are gigger than you we will not place maria nice either. brian: after that meeting in china. he mentioned it. and then vice president pence hardly a rogue comes out and says that libya

4:49 am
much consensus that means -- steve: how could you vote against it? >> hard for senators to deny the fact that a veteran should be able to choose. also gives the v.a. the ability to restructure itself, close facilities that aren't working or aren't being used and really give a veteran -- it's all about choice. that's what the president promised. vets are not dumb. we know where we want to get care. let us choose. >> the criteria to make is that choice, that does that worry you. i called, i couldn't get through, so now i can say i'm delayed. delayed enough to use my private physician? >> part of the problem is you still have a gate keeper who says you can have choice or not have choice. the v.a. has not done choice well so far. because that call maybe they get choice, maybe they don't. the v.a. doesn't pay for it and now they are stun stuck fore bill. the acting v.a. secretary who will be the v.a.

secretary next believes in choice. have you got to streamline it because so far the v.a. bureaucracy has fought this. they have said okay, we will give you choice but on our terms. when you decide that you really want choice, then you make the process easy so vets can actually -- ainsley: v.a. wasn't doing their job. keeping people on the list too long and then these veterans were dying and they weren't able to go to another hospital to get care. steve: step in the right directions. >> all about the v.a. and not the vets. this puts vets first. ainsley: this high school senior wanted to wear her army sash at graduation. it was given to her by a recruiter. but the school says no. and, of course, there is growing outrage about this one. steve: cooking with friends on the plaza. johnny joey jones is making spaghetti and meatballs with a twist. ainsley: yum ♪ dreaming red, white, and blue

5:02 am
if you don't stand you have to stay in the locker room. here is his reaction. some breaking news while you were in there. the nfl made a decision on something that means a lot to you and other americans. nfl owners voted unanimously to approve a new national anthem rule, it says if you are not going to stand stay in the locker room. if you go to the field you have to stand. if you have a protest, your team will get fined. first time you're hearing this. what is your reaction to mr. president. >> that is good hearing it. i don't think people should stay in locker rooms. you should stand proudly for the national anthem. you shouldn't be playing or shouldn't be there or maybe shouldn't be in the country. tough stand proudly for the national an then. the nfl owners did the right thing if that was done. brian: do you feel like you push this story forward and push it to conclusion? >> the people pushed it forward. it was not me. i brought it out. the peel pushed it forward. this country is very smart. we have very smart people. you know that is something that ideally could have been taken care of when it first started it
5:03 am
would have been a lot easier. if they did that, they're doing the right thing. steve: if you won't stand, maybe you should be, you should not be in the country. that is the president's assessment of what should happen to the players who, as we saw last year, it was random but there were a lot of people who did decide to take a knee because they felt like they wanted to bring attention to their cause. brian: san francisco 49ers jed york. i will abstain. 31 owners said yes. this is the new policy one said i will not vote at all. they had the most kneelers. it started with them. eric reed as well as kaepernick. both don't have jobs and both have a lot of football left because they don't want the blowback. cincinnati bengals owner came out and said, eric, i want to sign you, but if you won't stand for the anthem i won't. i can't guarranty i won't. he is now suing the league for collusion trying to destroy his

career. ainsley: giants owner said impact on the business. ratings were down 10%. important to be concerned about fans concern without them you're dead. fans are there to watch football. it is important not to have distractions. steve: you know what? the nfl was in a pickle. owners predominantly would like them all to stand. that is why they came up with the half measure. then again a lot of people in the country who feel players should be able to express themselves even though this is their place of employment. we asked what you you thought. suzie sent a tweet, why are they being allowed to hide in the locker room. if you live in the usa, get out, then out of respect, to the flag and all those who gave their lives for our freedom, they should all be required to stand. if you don't like this country, move somewhere else! which sounds kind of like what the president said. brian: go ahead. >> ryan e-mailed said it is not about the right thing to do. it is all about the money the
5:05 am
nfl has been losing. i don't even get excited to watch anymore. brian: gallup did a poll, what is your favorite sport? 43% of the country said nfl, football, now down to 37%. red says, i will abstain watching a single game for a second year in a row. ainsley: wow. steve: meanwhile something else brian talked to the president about. yesterday the president came out with a tweet and gave what is going on with mr. comey and perhaps a spy close to the trump campaign a name and the name is "spygate." the news today is that devin nunez wants to meet with department of justice officials along with trey gowdy and see some documents or some information regarding that secret source that we've heard a lot about. the names are floating around there, apparently a professor of some sort, and it looks like they're going to have a meeting and go hours of later the gang of eight will come in. these are people who get to see all the big secrets in our nation. how much will they see?
5:06 am
what will they be able to take away? we don't know and department of justice isn't saying. >> james comey tweeted, facts matter, the use of confidential human source, the actual term, not spy, is tightly regulated and essential to protect the country. attacks on the fbi and lie being about its work will do lasting damage to our country. how will republicans explain this to our grandchildren. brian: i asked the president what his reaction to that. we read some of your tweets on air. james comey responded, he said about a spy being in your campaign. he said this, facts matter. the fbi use of confidential human sources maybe you referred to as possible spies, that is the actual term is highly regulated and essential to protecting the country. attacks on the fbi and lying on its work will do lasting damage to our country. how will republicans explain this to their grand children. what is your reaction to james comey. >> how will he explain to his
5:07 am
grand children, all of the lies, all of the deceit, all the problems he caused for this country? i think a thing i have done for the country, the firing of james comey is going to go down as a very good thing. the fbi is great. i know so many people in the fbi. the fbi is a fantastic institution but some of the people at the top were rotten apples. james comb min was one of them. i've done a great service for this country by getting rid of him, by firing him. brian: you have no problem explaining this to your grandchildren. >> no, no. we're doing a great job. our country is coming back. our country is respected again. what we're doing over there is just another sign of it. that is just one of many things. but we have a country that has come a long way in a short period of time. i think you know that better than anybody, brian. you see that, you report on it every day. you look at the economy, look at jobs, lowest unemployment rate in many, in decades. lowest plaque unemployment in --
5:08 am
black unemployment in history. lowest hispanic unemployment in history. lowest women unemployment, 19 years. our country is doing well and we're respected again. we're doing incredible trade deals which haven't been negotiated for 25 years. brian: couple things. there has been a follow-up tweet after that, comey, a dangerous time led by those who lie about anything, backed by those who believe anything, based on information from media sources will say anything. americans must break out of this bubble to seek the truth. they will seek the truth with the "gang of eight" and devin vin nunez at years. there are rumors, fbi agents will step out against comey and mccabe. one perhaps is doing that. his name is joe penta, who interviewed general flynn. he plans to testify against comey and mccabe adding this. i, it was all comey. ainsley: what is his title? he is in the intelligence community? brian: he is in the fbi. interviewed michael flynn. steve: we knew you would read that tweet. we have booked an fbi agent in

5:17 am
corrupted the rules and they brought us to where the fbi is today. where they were injected into politics and the rules are designed to keep the fbi out of politics. the u.s. attorneys are a buffer. the courts are a buffer. and the fbi management should be a buffer particularly at the top of the house but in this case the rules were broken at the very top of the house. laundering leaks through a third party. very light investigation of the hillary clinton email and foundation, but at the same time, going, really pushing the envelope out on the trump investigation. steve: sure, james clapper said, on the view, when he was being grilled bring joy behar, he said, we weren't spying on the trump campaign. we were spying on the russians which makes it even worse. if the u.s. government knew russians were involved in the trump campaign, wouldn't there be obligations for the federal

government, wouldn't they tell a guy running for president, by the way, the russians are attempting to get close to you? >> there may be a light attempt. putin is no friend of the u.s. he would like to dance on our grave. he would like to put this democracy under. they envy our freedoms. they hate our freedoms and our democracy. he would do anything he can to undermine it. i understand that part of it completely. we need to get to the bottom of that. steve: okay. so you say the fbi has become super politicized. how many agents, field agents are out there, who if given the chance would go ahead and tell what they now and sounds like it wouldn't be good for mr. comey or mr. mccabe? >> i think there is about 15,000 agents and about 38,000 fbi employees. i'm not saying that the fbi is politicized. i'm saying comey and his inner circle took actions that tossed the fbi right into a political storm where they don't belong and they did it in so many
5:19 am
different ways. all stems from july 2016. every agent that i talk to, current and former bears a lot of bitterness and resentment towards comey and that inner circle, because they don't deserve this. they work hard every day. steve: right. >> they're the best of the best. finest law enforcement and intelligence agency in the world and they're being painted by the broad brush because of comey's actions. steve: sure. chris, exit question with law men. you're always trying to figure out a motive. why would comey and mccabe and others have done it? >> i mean i can only come back to two things. one is pure ego. they were i think, thought they were the center of the universe when it comes to making these morality decisions about who was good and who was bad. i also think that, they may well have been leaning towards the hillary camp. we now know from, from the book

that comey's entire family was leaning in that direction. we know mccabe was very much in the hillary camp because of the donations. i don't say this lightly. i mean everybody has political opinions. every agent votes. that is a political act in and of itself. steve: absolutely. when it crosses the line. that is what bugs you. chris schweiker served our nation 24 years. thank you for your service -- swecker. >> thank you. steve: what do you think about that? email us at foxandfriends.com. president under fire for calling ms-13 members animals. wait until you hear what i.c.e. director tom home ma'am calls them. he joins us in seven minutes. one fire department has seven babies. the whole group will join us live next.
